About RSPP

Rock Scissors Paper Press

A book packaging company serving the trade book industry.  Bringing together innovative concepts, inspired writers and talented graphic illustrators, our titles are both juvenile and adult in format, both rural and urban in subject.


We are based in Bearsville, a hamlet within the village of Woodstock, New York, a vibrant community in the Catskill Mountains where a creative colony of the arts has thrived since the turn of the 19th century.  Just a short train ride from New York City, the surrounding peaks and hollows become natural muses that inspire new perspectives every day.
